COMMENT

Advancements in medicine and overall technology have provided women diagnosed with breast cancer a way to successfully fight this disease.

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer found in women.

The statistics for a woman being diagnosed with breast cancer is 1 out of every 8 women.

With stats that high, you might want to memorize the 8 signs of breast cancer that I’ve listed below.

Being well informed is the best way to prevent fatalities from this disease.

8. Fatigue

A lot of viruses and daily activities cause fatigue.2

However, be on the lookout for an insurmountable level of fatigue.

If you are feeling tired nearly all day and every day, then it might be time to pay a visit to your doctor.

Unfortunately, fatigue is a sign associated with the latter stages of breast cancer.

7. Reddish Skin near Nipple or on the Breast Itself

You should know the normal color of your breasts, so any odd tint to your breasts should cause you to question the reasons for this change.

Make sure the reddish or pink appearance of your skin or nipple isn’t caused by a change in laundry detergent or a chemical in your clothing before you get all worked up about it.

6. A Clear or Blood-tinged Nipple Discharge

Having a slight discharge coming from the nipple isn’t abnormal for some women.

If you’ve never had this happen, then you might want to have your doctor run some tests.

While bloody nipple discharge should never be considered a normal occurrence, there are other colors that might be normal for some people;

green, white, yellow, and clear are common colors for both normal and abnormal nipple discharge.

5. Lump under Arm

Lymph nodes are placed all over your body and the ones under your arms are commonly affected when breast cancer is present.

During your monthly self-examination, you should be sure to check for lumps under each arm as well.

Palpitate the entire area under your armpit and even a little bit outwards from it.
